Vape Mail Ban

PACT ACT

UPDATE:

As you may already know, changes to the PACT Act will restrict how vape shipping is managed across the United States. We know these changes may negatively affect you.

Our staff has been working night and day with all shipping carriers, trucking companies, and counter-parties to find solutions to the shipping bans.

Here is what you need to know:

What is PACT?

  • The Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT) was originally pass in 2009 and amended on December 27, 2020. The Act was created to regulate the shipment of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco.
  • The 2020 amendment was updated to include “Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems” or ENDS. This includes empty or filled products.
  • ENDS are defined as “Any electronic device that through an aerosolized solution delivers nicotine, flavor, or any other substance to the user inhaling from the device.”

 

That includes:

    • E-cigarettes
    • E-hookah
    • E-cigars
    • Vape pens
    • Advanced refillable personal vaporizers
    • Electronic pipes
    • Vape batteries
    • Mouthpieces
    • Atomizers
  • ENDS will now be treated like tobacco when it comes to shipping. That means strict bans from most shipping services.
  • ENDS distributors and retailers must be PACT compliant.

 

When Does This Take Effect?

Distributors must be PACT compliant 90 days after the law was signed, or by March 26, 2021. However, shipping services have 120 days to enact their bans. PACT regulations are forcing all vape distributors and retailers to use private freight shipping services that will support the age verification service. Please understand that these new shipping methods will cause the cost of shipping to rise significantly. Unfortunately, this is entirely out of our control.

 

What To Do Now

USPS has stated that they may continue to ship ENDS until April 26, 2021. After this date, we believe that the only shipping methods that will be available for ENDS products will exclusively be through private LTL freight companies.

We strongly advise that you place your order as soon as possible before the ban goes into effect.

We appreciate your understanding as the industry works to overcome these difficult new regulations.

 

The PACT Act specifically states that “effective March 28, 2021, recipients of all vaping products purchased online will be required by law to present ID and sign for their delivery. The U.S. Postal Service ban on mailing vaping products will go into effect on April 27, 2021.  

Officially on April 26 we can no longer ship vape products to any customers through the Post office. As of April 5, we can not use the UPS. And effective this month, FedEx is also prohibiting it. Help us save the Vape Industry.
